I’ve added a new blogroll category to the page – Writer’s Links. As time progresses I will add further links to that category, but currently there are just two there.

Both deal with collections of markets for short stories (of numerous types), poetry, novellas etc. If you are interested in getting something published, such as a short story, and maybe even get paid for it (a small amount as it may be), then this is a good place to start.

Ralan’s Webstravaganza

Duotrope’s Digest

Unlike back at the height of the era of short stories, you won’t make a lot selling them. It is more about getting published than anything – if you do get one published expect to make less for it that Robert E. Howard did for his first ever published short story. Weird Tales published ‘Spear and Fang’ in July 1925 for $16, which would go far further back then than it would now.

Still, the act of getting published is the notable part – someone thinks that your work is good enough to be read and hopefully it will lead to bigger things.
